This museum has a ton of information packed into a small space. It is interesting to try to visualize the old canning operations. It's located at pier 39. Look for the Rogue Brewing sign and then go to right of the brewery. The museum is free and doesn't take long to visit.

This is a small museum at the end of the pier. Worth a walk as it tells a very interesting history of the company. Plus it's free! The restrooms are a little...er...rustic. It is at the end of the trolley line. Not much else there unless you want to walk up to the Goonires house.

We visited the Goonies House location and the kids asked for another Geocache search and they programmed one into their phones... More

The Cannery Museum and old cannery factory are both worthy of seeing. A private citizen assembled the museum and though it is small, it sits in the old cannery and it is a neat building. There was a lot in the museum to read if you take the time to do it. The Coffee Girl Cafe located on the premises... More

We stumbled upon the museum while trying to spot sea lions. It is quite a cool little place. Lots of really neat history. Stop by if you get a chance when you're in Astoria

Stumbled upon the cannery museum while walking around Pier 39. Cool little coffee place and some neat history. Nice sitting area behind the museum on the edge of the pier looking North to the Columbia River and the anchored ships.

The actual machinery on display was fascinating and the picture were amazing. One can learn the use of the machines by reading the explanations posted near the gear.
